Megan Borseth was born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa and attended the University of Northern Iowa. In 2016, she earned her degree in Studio Art with a concentration in Printmaking and a minor in Graphic Technology. During her time at UNI, Megan volunteered and ran an art therapy program for children at a local Autism Center, and was heavily involved in UNI Printmaker’s Society, a student run organization that plans and hosts collaborative community events and fundraisers. She is interested in social justice advocacy, and through her artwork, questions and addresses the byproducts of patriarchal culture.
While at the Workshop, Megan continued printing a monotype and woodcut series, The Marketing of Fear, calling attention to the manufacturing of pink—”women’s”—safety devices. She also collaborated with ceramics intern Mel Doiron, assisted with book production, and helped print the WSW portfolio Solidarity.
